    I came here thinking I'd get a late lunch but I was pleasantly surprised that they ha. 3pm! With that came bottomless mimosas at just $16.99!! The place has a very rustic ambiance and wasn't too loud either. It has booths, high top tables and regular tables, so an option for everyone. The menu is vast and has a ton of vegetarian options, which was great. I ordered spicy potato bravas which were the right amount of spicy, right there in the middle. The quantity is not excessive and perfect for a 1 person appetizer. As an entree I ordered an asparagus and sweet corn grain bowl. Let me tell you, the presentation was exquisite. I chose the egg option and the eggs were perfectly poached and over easy. I loved my experience and the service is absolutely outstanding. At the last minute I decided to order a strawberry pot de creme to top off my meal, absolutely amazing!!

    The food and service was great! We were placed in a room that became packed where you could not hear anyone else at the table, it was so loud. It kind of ruined our girls night experience. I’ve been multiple times, but this was my first experience inside. I will wait until the patio is open again.

    Our party of four (2 couples) stopped in at Eatery A before a concert. We shared three starters (roasted mushrooms, brussels and Moroccan carrots). The mushrooms and brussels were divine; the carrots were very tasty, but were served "al dente" style with a little more crispness to them than we would have expected for a cooked carrot dish. We then shared a #8 pizza (hot honey, capicola and pineapple) which was delicious and perfectly cooked, and three skewers (shrimp, pork souvlaki and chicken schwarma). The pork was incredible...very flavorful, perfectly cooked and served on a bed of delicious vegetables. Shrimp and chicken were also good, but the pork was a standout. For drinks, we had an IPA, seltzer, and two white sangrias. All were tasty and served at appropriate temperatures. Our server was knowledgeable, made good suggestions about portion sizes, and was familiar with the menu and offerings. Overall, we had a great time before our show, and enjoyed delicious food and service in an inviting atmosphere. We would recommend Eatery A for tapas style mediterranean food.

    We had reservations but had to wait for our table for about 15-20 minutes. It was very loud - hard to hear conversation. We were there on Friday night. Maybe during the week it would be a little quieter. The food was very good. We had pizza & pasta. The service was pretty good. We had some trouble getting our waitress over for more drinks. It was really busy so hard to blame her too much! Overall, it was very tasty meal just a little loud in the restaurant.

    Amazing flavors. We loved the use of mint in the Moroccan carrots and beets, tasted fresh. We ordered a Greek pizza and it tasted very authentic. Dessert was even more amazing, the blackberry sorbet that goes with the chocolate mousse is a must. And the salted caramel custard was rich but not too much. We loved our waitress Kate.

    The food was great and inside it was fairly quiet. Our server, however, spoke so softly that it was very difficult to hear her. Otherwise, she was attentive except that she had to be asked 4 or 5 times to bring my brother-in-law’s side of potatoes.

    Me and my boyfriend have been here 3 times, usually for special occasions. We had our first date here. Was craving something different & knew we had to go to Eatery A. Jake was our waiter and he was phenomenal. He brought me a cider in a can and mentioned the can seemed a little squishy so wanted to warn me in case the drink tasted off. So thoughtful. Helped us make choices on what to get, was able to refer specific dishes and options. He was incredible, friendly, and outgoing. Food was incredible per usual. Got the bruschetta, a charcuterie board & half/half pizza! We left in a food coma. We will always go back. 10/10

    Great selection done with care...If you want something besides burger and fries with a side of blah then go somewhere else...Eatery A serves delicious food from different cultures with great care and gusto...I am sure they also have a burger if you have one of those friends...PIZZA...everything from regular to the exotic and all are done perfectly...everyone can make a sauce and throw stuff on it but the proof is in the crust, chewy, tender, cooked to perfection and flavorful...Only a few places in town can do this and Eatery A is one of them...

    We went for happy hour and loved the 1/2 price pizza and drink. The price of pizza is cheaper than Dominos and they are fantastic. The inside dining area is great, and they also have a nice patio. Parking onsite is limited, but there is enough street parking to typically not be an issue. This one of our favorites in the Des Moines Area. We have gone for nice sit-down dinners as well just for drinks, appetizers, and desserts. Everything we have ordered has been great. That is pretty rare for a restaurant.
